Video Description

World War II was over sooner in some places than in others. US troops took some of the islands in the Marshalls, in Palau, and in the Marianas. Ulithi Atoll, occupied early, was used as a fleet anchorage in the last year of the war. Other islands had to wait until August 1945, after peace was made, to begin their return to normal life. But for all, the end of hostilities marked the start of a transition to a way of life that islanders could not have imagined. American military men were at hand to guide them during these early post-war days.
